This photographic work is above all a poetic essay that revolves around a tension, an opposition:
On the one hand, I plan to celebrate the beauty and unity of the Mediterranean world – in particular its landscapes – with a black and white photographic series which will echo the magnificent text by Albert Camus Noces à Tipasa.
In counterpoint, I want to evoke in an almost subliminal way the question of the limit, the border, the property as a questioning of this lost paradise. The exhibition will be seen as a poetic installation aimed at moving but also raising awareness on the fragile balances of the Mediterranean territory.
The City of Ecully welcomes photographer Bertrand Perret throughout the month of May for the presentation of his exhibition “Mediterranean Wedding”.
A way for the city to “de-confine” culture, a desire to keep a link with the public, to continue to offer demanding content in the public space, while celebrating the vast multicultural space of the Mediterranean.
The exhibition is presented outdoors, in the city center, free of charge, available to all.
